Soft Drinks and Dental Health

Summer is here! And although it may seem tempting to pop open a can of your favorite soda, please think twice! Soft drink consumption is one of the leading causes of tooth decay. The carbonation, sugar and acids in sodas have been proven to weaken your tooth’s enamel and encourage the growth of the bacteria that contributes to tooth decay.

If you want to reduce this risk but can’t quite seem to kick your soda habit altogether, try these simple tricks:

  • Drink soda in moderation
  • Use a straw in order to help keep the sugar away from your teeth
  • Avoid drinking soft drinks before bed
  • Rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth after consuming sugary beverages
  • Receive regular dental checkups and cleanings

Have a great summer and make sure you’re keeping up with your dental hygiene routine!
